On-site identification of hazardous materials
Detects chemicals, drugs, explosives
The TruDefender FTX perfectly complements the mobile Raman spectrometer FirstDefender RM, since it also measures dark and fluorescent substances. The head of the TruDefender is equipped with a small stamp, thus enabling easy working with flexible pushing. Powder and fluid samples are especially easy to position.
- Analyses unknown organic and inorganic solids and fluids in a matter of seconds.
- Clear results with no need for interpretation. The database includes security notes regarding the appropriate handling of the identified substances.
- The instrument measures solids and fluids as well as pastes, aqueous solutions and mixtures.
- Every analysis automatically measures for mixtures.
Areas of application
Analysis of hazardous materials by:
- Fire brigades
- Emergency management
The TruDefender has been especially developed for on-site, harsh outdoor conditions. The ergonomic design allows for easy handling, even in protective clothing. The instruments are particularly easy to decontaminate.
